Safer Together – Emergency Preparedness and Response for Seniors

May 18, 2017 at 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm

If a disaster struck, and your senior loved one/neighbor is at home or in a skilled nursing facility and is evacuated, where will they be taken? How will you find them?  Will their special needs be met?  Will they have their medications, water, walker, cane, oxygen, etc?  Join us to hear what it was like in the 2004 and 2007 wildfire evacuations, and the innovative models that have been developed since to make it “safer together” for our loved ones.

Speaker’s panel:

Scott J. Tarde, CEO & Executive Director, George G. Glenner Alzheimer’s Family Centers. (Scott is also a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator)

Pauline Thomas, RN, QAS, Public Health Preparedness and Response (PHPR) Branch, County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency

Justin Weber, Executive Director, Casa de Manana (Mr. Weber will speak about their role in San Diego’s response to the 2007 wildfires and how they helped coordinate the transportation and relocation of seniors during that week.)
